Kailua-Kona House Rental Photos and Description

Uniquely located historic Keauhou Bay

The cottage is part of the Evans Estate. The beautifully renovated 1400 sq ft one bedroom home offers modern amenities amidst the seclusion of one acre of beautifully landscaped grounds on more than 200 feet of gated, privately accessible oceanfront. The romantic setting is complimented by recent loving restoration of this classic Kona home owned by the same family for almost 70 years. Architectural and design highlights include original beautifully restored hardwood floors, deck railing hand made from recovered local eucalytus trees, fossilized limestone countertops, basalt and limestone bathroom with rain and hand showers and jacuzzi tub, and solatube skylights. Watch all the recreational activities of the bay from surfing to kayaking from your bedroom, covered lanai and around the grounds, all overlooking the water's edge where you can share a swim, share a romantic sunset or practice morning yoga. The cottage is one of three cottages on the Evans Estate.

Perfect location on Keahou Bay

We have been going to the big island for many years and this property is by far the best place we have stayed. It offers simple yet luxurious accommodations overlooking the ocean. You have access to the water 25 feet from your doorstep for snorkeling, swimming, kayaking, etc. the house and property are absolutely beautiful. Fruit trees are abundant as well as lovely flowering plants. Michael was wonderful to work with as well. We will definitely plan to return to this wonderful property.

My husband and I just spent a truly wonderful week at this lovely cottage! The cottage is well stocked with everything you need and just feels so Hawaii! The property is everything shown in the pictures and more... peaceful, romantic, quiet and just drop dead gorgeous! Honestly, it's almost hard to leave the place:) Michael was a very good host, always available but respectful of our privacy.

A Quite, Beautiful Setting!

  • 5 of 5

This Oceanfront Cottage is wonderful. It truly is an oasis of privacy in a beautiful setting on the bay. The access to the water is one of kind. The cottage is roomy and comfortable with all of the modern amenities. Michael is a wonderful host and was always attentive to anything we needed. The lanai facing the water offers a great place to relax and take it all in. Sunsets from the shoreline are amazing. The location is close to anything you might need! We would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a romantic Hawaii experience!

Absolutely loved the Evans Estate!!! Beautiful cottage and the most stunning view. The location was perfect for any activity on the island. We plan to go back to the Big Island and will stay at the Evans Estate again. Michael was a very friendly and knowledgeable host. Snorkeling just outside our front door was just as good as on a trip with one of the diving companies.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Evans estate. The cottage had a great Hawaian feel... Open with lots of light. It had a comfortable Lanai to eat, relax and read. We liked the private feel. There is a swimming area with nice views. The snorkeling is pretty good. It's rocky but you can sit with lounge chairs too. I had some success fishing in evening. We used it as a home base to explore southern parts of island.

We found heaven!!

  • 5 of 5

When you go to Hawaii, you want that perfect Hawaiin experience. This cottage just nails it. Beautiful design, very open with a fab lanai that is just steps down to the ocean. Drop your bags, slip on your suit, and jump in the ocean. Fantastic rain shower, sit back on your lanai each evening with sundowners and some fresh ahi tuna...take another swim. Just 100 meters up the road is an aquatic center for snorkel trips (very professional and top shelf) and deep sea fishing charters, and a small restaurant so you can walk and be car free for a few days too.

Bed was large and comfy, kitchen fully kitted out, nice bbq. The host was a great guy too, very nice and helpful. If you want a special holiday in Hawaii (and who doesn't!), this is The Place!!
